Fox News Just Suspended Jeanine Pirro And Trump Is Losing It: ‘Bring Her Back!’

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro has been suspended by the network, CNN reported Sunday. The suspension comes as the controversy over comments she made about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) loyalty to the Constitution continues to grow and advertisers flee the network.

Pirro’s show, “Justice with Jeanine,” did not air Saturday evening during its regularly scheduled block and was replaced with an episode of “Scandalous.”

Pirro suggested during her March 9 show that Omar’s religious beliefs were at odds with the U.S. Constitution.

“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Shariah law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Fox News condemned Pirro’s comments, saying they had addressed the matter directly with the host.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement last week. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

President Trump on Sunday defended Pirro, warning that the Democrats and the “Fake News Media” are trying to silence a majority of the country through a campaign against the network’s conservative hosts.

“The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well,” he tweeted.

Trump specifically named Jeanine Pirro, host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” calling for Fox to “bring back @JudgeJeanine.” Pirro’s Fox News show did not air on Saturday night.

A Fox News spokesperson said in a statement that the network is “not commenting on internal matters.”
